Greetings,  
 
There's a great deal yet to be learned about ZIKV. *If* both Aedes and Culex spp. are vectors, then it's possible that other genera may be vectors as well. WNv, a similar flavivirus that also targets the nervous system, has been found by the CDC in over 50 spp. of mosquitoes in the US: http://www.cdc.gov/westnile/resources/pdfs/mosquitospecies1999-2012.pdf  
 
The large number of ZIKV cases in Florida will probably give us the best picture of what may happen in the rest of the country: https://twitter.com/wsvn/status/702988221416919040

Following things to be taken to avoid mosquito bites.  
 
Fix mosquito net for windows, doors.  
Don't keep stagnant water around your environment.

Mosquitoes might be attracted toward pregnant ladies because they exhale 21 percent more carbon dioxide than average, about 1.26 degrees Fahrenheit.  
 
As the mosquito has sensors, if you wear black, dark blue or red colors you will stand out and make it so easier to find you.  
 
My another suggestions for drinkers. Just a single 12-ounce of beer is enough to make you more attractive to mosquitoes.  
 
Fixing mosquito screens will rectify the problems.
